This manual provides a set of indicators that can be used to carry out assessments of the impacts of bioenergy on food security. In particular, it describes a methodology for assessing, through different steps and tiers, the effects of bioenergy use and domestic production on the price and supply of a national food basket. It also focuses on the project level and provides a tool that can be used to assess how an existing or planned agricultural operation with a bioenergy component may affect food security. The last chapter of the document discusses a range of possible responses to address the impacts identified at both national and project levels.
